Buy a new mid-range phone, or last year’s flagship? Twitter responds!

LG V30 Review: The Media Monster – Pocketnow

LG V30 Review time! From prototype to retail unit, the V30 has been in our hands for a while now. Our experiences have largely been positive, but this launch came with some controversy we’ll need to discuss. Two months with the phone, how has it held up against other flagships? We all know that the V series are multimedia powerhouse devices, but fans of LG’s phablets have voiced concerns about losing the replaceable battery and the durability of LG’s new glass back.

Recode, the iPhone X, and Institutionalized Racism: an ANGRY vlog…

Buckle up. I couldn’t hold this one in. An article was published on Recode following the release of a series of first-look videos, from a handful of YouTube channels. There’s a lot of salt, but the overall tone (and mis-characterization of these video producers) was vile. I don’t believe anyone at Recode is overtly racist, but we need to have a chat about perception and different points of view…
